The race to research a disappearing Roman villa

Researchers and volunteers are racing to study a Roman villa in England before it disappears over the side of an eroding cliff.

Dr Andrew Richardson from the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, which has been excavating the site, said the villa on Folkestone’s West Cliff is continuing to erode over the edge and archaeologists are hoping to capture as much information from the site before it crumbles into the sea.

Most of the work has been done on the dig by volunteers working with a team of three professional archaeologists.
